Vegan Red Lentil Flatbread (2 Ingredients!)

Vegan red lentil flatbread recipe made with just 2 ingredients. This lentil flatbread is oil-free, gluten-free, protein-rich, and delicious. Perfect for wraps or your favorite dip.

  • Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 5-6 flatbreads 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 cup of dry red lentils
  • 2 cups of water
  • Optional seasonings: salt, pepper, oregano, thyme, cumin, fresh herbs, or curry powder


  1. Rinse and Soak: Begin by rinsing the red lentils thoroughly under cold water. Then, place the lentils in a bowl and cover them with two cups of water. Let the lentils soak for 1-2 hours. This soaking process will soften the lentils and aid in easy blending. (NOTE: you can skip the soaking and just add the water and lentils to a blender and make the batter. But, the flatbread won’t turn out as soft and flexible. If you skip the soaking use 1 3/4 cup of water.)
  2. Blend: After the lentils have soaked, transfer them to a high-speed blender and blend until it creates a smooth batter-like consistency. It will resemble pancake batter. (NOTE: soak the lentils in the blender instead of a bowl if you want to eliminate a step.)
  3. Season to Taste: At this stage, you can enhance the flavor of the batter by adding a pinch of salt and your choice of spices or herbs. Cumin, turmeric, garlic powder, and chopped fresh herbs like cilantro, thyme, oregano, or parsley work wonderfully. Blend again briefly to incorporate the seasonings.
  4. Cooking the Flatbread: Heat a non-stick pan or griddle over medium heat. Once the pan is hot, ladle about 1/3 cup of the batter onto the pan and gently spread it into a round shape using the back of the ladle. Don’t make the flatbread too thin; aim for a thickness of about 1/4 inch.
  5. Golden Perfection: Cook the flatbread for about 2-3 minutes then flip with a spatula and cook the other side for 1-2 minutes.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Transfer the red lentil flatbread to a wire rack or plate and let cool for a moment. This flatbread pairs wonderfully with dips, spreads, soups, or for replacing bread and filling with your favorite sandwich fillings.


Use a nonstick pan over medium heat when making this recipe.

Wash your lentils. It will get rid of any debris that got passed quality control.

Let the batter rest before blending: it will yield softer flatbreads.
